In order to add a new event, you should select "Events" > "Add" from the menu on the left. First you should add the title and description of the event. Then you should fill in when the event will take place and where it will be held. You can also leave the end of the event empty. You can use existing venues and create new ones. To do that, you should enter the name of the location and select "Create: location". When entering a new location, you should add the postal code in the "Location" field, because if you enter it in the provided field, it will be placed after the location. If necessary, you can add an organizer. If necessary, you can also categorize the event on the right.
Extension by event tickets
- Registration for an event
If you want to register for an event, you have to create a new "Reservation" at "Tickets". At Type of ticket, if there is nothing specific, just enter "Standard". At Capacity enter the amount of available tickets. It is not possible to register for an event once this quota of tickets is exhausted. At "Events" -> "Events" you can see in the line of the respective events under Participants how many have registered and with a click on this number you get more detailed information like name and e-mail address of the persons.
- Ticket sales for an event
If you want to offer a ticket sale for an event, you have to edit the respective event and create the specifications for the tickets under "Tickets". The field "Type" is of course useful to show the customer what kind of ticket it is (seating ticket, standing ticket, etc.). Under "Price" you specify how much the ticket should cost and under "Capacity" you specify how many tickets you want to sell.
- Toggle "Advanced": Here you can add a ticket description and define the start and end of the sale.
- Toggle "Subscriber information": Here you can still request the desired information from the customer (e.g. institution, address, phone number, etc.). This information is then requested from the customer when the card is purchased.
- List of participants for an event
If one has a registration for events or a ticket sale for an event, a list of participants is generated automatically. This can be emailed directly from WordPress or you can use the export function and get a CSV file that can be imported into Excel.
